Re: Scivener and collaboration

This is a Bad Idea. From the Mac v. 3.1.3 manual, p. 365: Keeping two versions of the same project in sync: do not try to sync two different projects with the same folder. Bad things could happen, and all of Scrivener’s warnings when you attempt to do should be heeded. Two copies of the same project...

Re: Keyboard most similar to MacBook keyboard (particularly ctrl, fn, cmd key placement)?

I feel your pain. :D You might have a look at Mac Ally products. Mac keyboard layout products are their specialty. I've been happy with their PMOBILEKEY foldable Bluetooth model. Logitech might be worth a look, too. OTOH, I just bought an older Apple Wireless Keyboard, new in box, that has an identi...

Re: Change Font Colors for Index Card/Corkboard?

Hi, @annekaelber. This thread is in the Mac forum, but your profile says you're a Windows user. I'll tell you how this works as a Mac Scrivener 3 user, :D but I can't answer how this works in Windows. Yes, on Mac the text automatically changes from white to black or vice-versa depending on how dark ...

Re: Scrolling within Index Cards

Actually, the auto-fill from main text command doesn't load the entire main text into the synopses, but only the first N characters ( I think about 500.) Like JackDaniel, I prefer to not apply real synopses to any documents save those which are true outline documents, in which case the synopsis is m...

Re: Aeon Timeline compatibility?

Aeon timeline is compatible with both the Scrivener 3 project format and the Mac Scriv 2/Win Scriv 1 project format. I've been using Aeon Timeline with Mac Scriv 3 for a while now with no problems.

Re: Does this timeline view exist?

It's not really a timeline view, it's a view done by separating by labels. It's available in Mac Scrivener 3.x.x. You can read about it in the Scriv 3 manual in section 8.2.5.

Re: Act View/ Save the Cat style grid for Corkboard

I've done this for years with stacked corkboards. See Mac manual section 8.2.8. Hope this helps! EDIT: I see that you're a Windows user. In that case, stacked corkboards may not be available to you. I would expect them to be in the Beta, but what do I know? :D In any event, this feature works quite ...

Re: Commitment & responsibility...

Lest anyone forget, there was this same sort of distress about the release of iOS Scrivener (for 4 years, I think). And I saw mention of Scrivener 3 for Mac in the works at least three years before it was even in beta, too. And once Scriv3Mac *was* in beta, oh the pestering as to when the release wa...

Re: Do you prefer Scrivener for iOS or Ulysses???

I find my preference depends on what I'm writing. For fiction, I vastly prefer Scrivener. For short non-fiction articles (i. e., my blog) I prefer Ulysses. I don't do long-form nonfiction so I can't speak to it. I loathe iCloud and use Ulysses with Dropbox. The sync is still smoother with Ulysses. B...

Re: Saving something to Research folder on iOS?

It's just a bit convoluted. Scrivener has no idea *which* project you want to add the research to—even if you only have one project, the Tutorial project is always there. So, use the "Copy" sheet in Safari, switch to Scrivener, select the intended research folder, and tap the "Import&...

L&L Website appears broken on iOS

My apologies. I know this isn't the website's forum, but there's really no place to post about website problems. Please, moderator, move this to a more appropriate forum if possible. I usually use the forum on iOS. In the past two days, the forum menus have stopped working on my iOS devices. I use S...

Re: Snapshots stopped working.

Uh… @smedleygoodfellow and @forgottengold, each of your profiles say Windows, but this thread is in the Mac forum. No worries if it's intended, but just to confirm—is it Mac Scrivener or Windows Scrivener that y'all are asking about?
